Bayview Cottage

Bayview Cottage
Our family has carved out a wonderful life in the coastal community of Milbridge, Maine, and now we can share a slice of this world with you. Are you looking for quiet, an ocean view, hiking to amazing vistas, opportunities to walk along the beach, collect sea glass, build a campfire, gaze at the Milky Way, and play? Maybe you enjoy bird watching, whale watching, kayaking, or lake swimming. Bay View might be just your cup of tea. Surrounded by fields of blueberries, cranberries, and lots of romping room for you and your dog friends, our cottage overlooks Pigeon Hill Bay and Bois Bubert Island, a National Wildlife refuge. The town offers a movie theater, pharmacy, restaurants, a museum, and more. McClellans Park calls Milbridge home, spring fed lakes are nearby, and the Narraguagus River meets the ocean here. Our kayaks are yours for the day and we offer a complimentary lobster dinner to our guests.

Big Bear...

...Barry Leighton has 2 Shore Dinners he prepares for guests at both Bayview and The Camp.   Maine and lobster go together and the dinner is on us!  It's our way of saying thank you for visiting our little corner of the world.

Our night sky... splendid on clear summer nights.  Though this is not a photo of our views of the MW from The Camp, this is a similar view of what we see.  Over our camp is The Big Dipper and along the eastern shore of camp, looking into the heavens, we can see The Milky Way.  It travels north to south during the season so by early winter we've lost sight of it.

We love watching satellites travel and it's a popular game to see who can spot the first satellite of the evening.  Occasionally we see jets flying at high altitudes, and it's fun to imagine where they're headed.

Here the ocean is a wonder but so is the night sky.

View from Camp

Heard on our camp deck:  "You know, Jacquie, no where do we see the ocean where we live where there are great stretches of forest between the houses. It's all built up.  This is amazing."

Bayview's path to the ocean

"Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, / And sorry I could not travel both / And be one traveler, long I stood / And looked down one as far as I could."  -RF
